Hi, I’m Debbie Chapman! I live in beautiful London, Ontario, Canada with my three children and my amazing husband. Welcome to my little corner of the internet!
Do you love to cook, bake, craft, or create? Join us as we make things one little project at a time! We’ve got hundreds of step by step tutorials for kids crafts/activities, fun recipes, DIY/craft projects, holiday projects and more!
I’m the author, photographer and creator behind One Little Project. I love creating fun and easy crafts for my kids and cooking up easy and delicious recipes.
I started photographing the things I made and sharing them online back in 2012 – and it became my passion. What started out as a dream for nights and weekends has grown into a full-blown business (!!) with our crafts and recipes now reaching about a million people each month.
Over the years our work has been featured on the websites for Country Living, Women’s Day, Good Housekeeping, Fox, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, The Food Network, Reader’s Digest and many more.
Even though I’m formally trained as an Engineer and Architect, I was able to leave my Engineering job in 2016 to work on this website full time. I feel so blessed that this is my job and I get to do something I love every single day!

Fun things about me:
- I have three amazing kids, two girls and a boy
- I LOVE coffee. And red wine. And I’m addicted to Diet Coke.
- I play the piano and love to sing and I used to be a teacher for both.
- I worked as a Mechanical Engineer for 8 years.
- I perfected my crafting skills in Architecture school where we had to make teeny tiny models of buildings.
- My husband is my best friend, advocate and supporter. He’s pretty awesome!
Our Book: Low-Mess Crafts for Kids
After a year of crazy hard work, I released my book Low-Mess Crafts for Kids in June 2018. Even though I’m decked out in my comfy sweater, plaid shirt, glasses and my slicked back bun, I love this photo. (I’m making the photo smaller hoping you won’t notice all those things!!) I was sooooo excited when I got the first copy of my book in the mail!
Our book Low-Mess Crafts for Kids is loaded with 72 fun and simple craft ideas for kids! The projects are fun, easy and most importantly low-mess, so the clean up is simple!
